    Worse to Come

    Things are bad right now, but I see them getting worse before they get better. The UK is feeling the pinch worse than the rest of Europe. Our whole economy is based on people buying stuff they can't afford.

    Horrible

    It's an outrage!  More and more stories in the news. Teachers are being let go now. Condencing classes to save on money, that's crap!  We need help for this poor situation.

    And You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet

    Wait until unemployment hits 25%. Of course, maybe at that point, our government will do something other than bail out the rich. Nah.
